Hepatitis - Prevention And Control

infected research

Research into the virus was slow because of the limited amounts which could be isolated and collected from both naturally infected humans and experimentally infected primates. Recently, successful genetic cloning (artificial duplication of genes) is greatly enhancing research efforts. Surprisingly, research found that antibodies exist in between 1%-5% of people who have never been infected with hepatitis. Until an effective vaccine is developed, sanitation remains the most important factor in preventing the spread of HEV.
